      Re: Viewing CCTV on internet and Mobile

      The more I read and figure things out it must be my computer connection to the router that I am struggling with.
      I set up my DNS and the dvr connected to the Internet fine. However I have not sorted the auto updater on the computer so today the dns test failed.

      But throughout all of this I cannot connect to the dvr with my laptop.
      So there is a problem with my router settings!

      There is an option on the sky router to select yes to a dns. Does this need to be ticked on the router as well?

      On the router Setup page, advanced then Dynamic DNS, there is a box to tick next to Use Dynamic DNS service, tick that
      service provider is www DynDNS.org
      Host name, use the one you choose when you setup DNS
      User name " " "
      Password " "

      I also have the box ticked that says Use Wildcards

      Here lies a problem.
      My sky router will only allow me to choose dyndns as a dns provider.
      I have used no-ip as a dns provider. So cannot add my service details.
      I understand this will stop me viewing from an external source but,
      Will this stop me hooking up my laptop to it?

      I cant really answer that, I choose dyndns due to the router accepting them easier than another dns provider.

      Have you paid a subscription for no-ip, if not might be worth changing to dyndns.

      Sorry.

      It should not really matter if DDNS is set in the router. If you have set it up with NoIp then when you put in your dynamic address and the DVRs port number, it should take you through to the router. This then directs it to the service port of the DVR. If you want to access the DVR from within your network, open a browser and type the DVRs internal IP address into the address bar.

      So I also take it that the static ip address box on the dvr relates to a static ip address for the dvr?
      not a static ip address for my router (which I don't have)

      Re: Viewing CCTV on internet and Mobile

      I have gone on to the attached devices for my router and can see this

      7 192.168.0.99 UNKNOWN 00:23:63:28:A1:AB

      this tells me the dvr is connected to the router

      However I have tried typing into the address bar of my browser

      192.168.0.1:85
      192.168.0.99
      192.168.0.99:85

      And it will not connect to the dvr via the router!

      What am I doing wrong?

      You appear to have a number of devices connected. Can you check that this is the DVRs IP by unplugging it, check the attached devices then plug it in again and recheck that it has the same address? If it has not been given a manual IP address and is receiving the address from the DHCP server, it is likely to change.

      With regards accessing it from within your network, you could try mapping it as a Network drive. Instructions on how to do this in Win 7 are here, Vista and XP are very similar.

      I have finally sorted this out completely including viewing cameras on
      a laptop, netbook and iPad via my wifi LAN, and
      iphone, android phone via 3g
      laptop via Internet.
